Emergencies involving the eye happen frequently. With any trauma, your pet should evaluated as soon as possible by a veterinarian.
Not all ocular emergencies require evaluation by a veterinary ophthalmologist. Any injury where the head was involved with blunt force trauma or any injury that is life-threatening should be evaluated immediately/as soon as possible by your primary veterinarian or the nearest 24-hour emergency hospital.
The Eye Specialist for Animals is available for emergency referral cases during business hours and after hours on a case-by-case basis.
⌚ We are open from 8:00 a.m-5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you feel your pet is having an ocular emergency, call 6996 1812 or have your primary care veterinarian call our clinic during business hours to discuss emergency referral.
🦺 For new clients, please follow the steps below.
You must be referred by a veterinarian, either your primary care veterinarian or an emergency veterinarian. The veterinarian should call the number 6996 1812 and leave a message with the reception.
The message should include: first and last name of the patient and owner, type of pet (including breed, age and sex), name of veterinarian, a brief description of the emergency and best contact number to reach the veterinarian. A message will be sent to the on-call staff that will contact your veterinarian to determine the best course of action for your pet.
Our on-call staff will then contact you to discuss arrangement for an after-hours examination and fees associated the emergency visit. Your veterinarian and our veterinarian may determine emergency examination can wait until business hours and instead discuss the best medical management for your pet until referral.
